Pelican Lake   3,200-1,700 B.P.

Pelican Lake is a corner-notched, triangular-shaped projectile point with wide notches that form sharp points where they intersect the edges of the blade and base.  The points have a lenticular cross section.  Blades are straight to concave, and bases are straight to concave.  The edges and bases are beveled.  The widest point is just above the notches. Length, width, and thickness vary widely. Wettlaufer, B.
